tv Jimmy Kimmel Live ABC December 30, 2011 12:00am-1:05am PST
morning america." and we're always online at abc news. jimmy kimmel is up next. i'll see you back here tomorrow. >> dicky: tonight on "jimmy kimmel live" -- >> jimmy: it is kind of funny. riot police arrested hundreds of people outside city hall, still less violent than black friday after every walmart in america. >> reporte >> dicky: jim parsons. >> were you in your underwear on that show? >> jimmy: probably. >> dicky: taylor kitsch. and music from my morning jacket. >> jimmy: how you doing over there, cory? everything all right? >>
>> dicky: from hollywood, it's "jimmy kimmel live!" tonight -- jim parsons. taylor kitsch. and music from my morning jacket. with cleto and the cletones. and now, don't worry. here's jimmy kimmel! ♪ it's "jimmy kimmel live" [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: that's very nice, thank you. thank you, cleto. hi, i'm jimmy, i'm the host of the show. thank you for watching at home. thank you for coming out tonight.
be honest. how many of you are just here because you got kicked out of occupy l.a.? [ laughter ] probably heard, after two months, the lapd broke up the occupy protest outside city hall here in los angeles last night. which means it's time for the homeless people to go back to the library, where they belong. police in riot gear came in after midnight and ordered the protesters out of the area. the situation was nothing, if not tense. >> the crowd is quite agitated because they believe an eviction is imminent. take a live look now. they have circled, joined hands around what they call the last tent to go. this is right in the middle of the encampment. what is this for? >> uh -- what? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: it was late. surprisingly, the police didn't find any drugs on the premises. which means that the police are not very good at finding drugs. [ laughter ] that shot -- that actually shocked me, no drugs at occupy
l.a. like raiding a karaoke bar and not finding any koreans. [ laughter ] some of our local news channels covered the action live last night and the protesters seemed to fall into one of two categories. one group was made up of passionate citizens who are angry about the relationship between corporations and government. and the other group was people like this. >> are you guys refusing to leave when the officers show up? what is your plan? >> i plan on leaving. because i can't stay, i have some other things i have to do. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i think -- wake up early and wash my kerchief in the morning. so, he got out of there. almost 300 people were arrested because they refused to leave. but there was very little violence. it seems the only thing the government does well these days is kick people out of parks. it is kind of funny, riot police arrested hundreds of people outside city hall, still less violent than black friday at every walmart in america. [ laughter ]
so, occupy l.a. encampment is over and with it, the world's longest hackey sack game comes to an end. but at least now the park can be returned to its rightful owners -- crack salesmen. time to get back to work. meanwhile, in new york tonight, the annual lighting of the christmas tree. at rockefeller center. already, a dozen protesters are living in the tree right now. [ laughter ] something like 250,000 people camped out to see the tree get all lit up like kathie lee and hoda. and -- [ laughter ] they did light it. cee-lo green was on hand to sing, because i can think of no better way to celebrate the birth of christ than with the guy that sings the "f-you" song. in case you missed it, here's the annual lighting of the christmas tree. >> oh my god!
oh. one of new york's brightest. >> jimmy: i think it may have been the wrong tape. [ laughter ] but either that or people are very excited about this tree. [ laughter ] they say the best way to get a naked guy off the roof of your cab is just to floor it. tonight was the last night of november, december is here and there's a lot to get done. my family decided, i don't know who decided this, but they decided to have a white elephant gift exchange. i'm not exactly sure how it works. all i know for sure is that it will definitely cause a fight that will last until next christmas. there's a lot to know and a lot to keep track of around the holidays and no one knows more than my aunt chippy. she's a fountain of knowledge and cheer. and tonight, she shares her wisdom with all of us in a new segment we call "dear aunt chippy." ♪ >> hi, this is aunt chippy, answering your holiday e-mailed questions. let's see what we got today.
dear aunt chippy, at my office, we do a secret santa. that's nice. the maximum spending limit is $25. but there is no minimum spending limit. is it okay if i only spend $2 for a cute little knickknack i find at target? you cheap bastard. you shouldn't even be in the secret santa. i hope you get something that's worth a piece of [ bleep ] penny. because that's all you deserve, you cheap son of a bitch. merry christmas. if you have a question, e-mail email@example.com. >> jimmy: she's a real katie couric. herman cain this afternoon vowed to stay in the presidential race, no matter how many people he has sex with. [ laughter ] there's talk he might hang it up after another woman came forward, an atlanta businesswoman named ginger white. for some reason, she decided to go on tv and tell everyone that she and mr. cain have been involved in an extramarital
affair for the last 13 or 14 years. cain denies that they're anything more than friends and called her a troubled woman. which, of course she's a troubled woman. she slept with herman cain for the last 13 years. [ laughter ] ginger white claims that cain has been giving her money and gifts for years but she says it was not a sex for money arrangement. it was purely a sex for pizza arrangement. [ laughter ] the hermanator appeared on fox news and in a round-about way, was asked if he had any other ginger whites to look for. >> can you say unequivocally if there might be any others that coming forward? >> neil, i was in business for over 40 years. i have worked with and helped a lot of people, male and female. there is no way for me to say unequivocally. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i'm not sure i heard that correct. there's no way for you to say what? >> there is no way for me to say
unequivocally. >> jimmy: i can't say it, either. [ laughter ] so, your move, rick perry. by the way, good wishes to our parking lot security guard guillermo, who, right now, is at the hospital, having his first child. [ cheers and applause ] on the way to the hospital this morning, guillermo's tequila broke and they had to -- [ laughter ] usually the wife has the baby but he's always full of surprises, guillermo. filling in for guillermo tonight is cory, who plays chewbacca out on hollywood boulevard. thank you, cory. [ applause ] coming in at the last minute. do you have any kids yourself? >> no. >> jimmy: are you married, have a girlfriend, anything like that? >> ah -- not yet. >> jimmy: not yet. have you ever held a child? have you ever -- >> ah -- i've held them, but they're pretty fragile. >> jimmy: yeah, you have to be very careful.
have you ever changed a diaper? >> no. >> jimmy: you haven't. would you like to go visit guillermo in the hospital to see the new baby with me? >> yeah. >> jimmy: and maybe they will let you pick the baby up. >> yeah, i can pick him up. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: it would be a nice surprise. [ laughter ] in other celebrity baby news, kourtney kardashian has announced today that she is pregnant with guillermo's second child. [ laughter ] she said -- she said a sweet thing, she said she wanted to have kids ever since she found out they start with the letter k. and this probably won't surprise you, but the e network is already making plans to integrate the new addition into the kardashian tv family. >> kourtney kardashian's fetus is only a few weeks old. but it's already got attitude. go way inside your favorite tv family. "fetus kardashian: kicking it fallopian." produced by ryan seacrest. followed by an all-new "bruce jenner's uterus." only on e. >> jimmy: he has one of those? [ applause ]
i had no idea. oh, hey, speaking of the kardashians, barbara walters, you know, every year she does this most fascinating people list and she's released some of the names on the most fascinating people of 2011. sure enough, the kardashians are among them. the kardashians and donald trump. i think barbara's fascinometer may be broken. [ laughter ] donald trump and the kardashians? is this a barbara walters special or a launch party for a new vodka? so far none of the "real housewives" have made the list. have you been watching "the real housewives" of atlanta? over the weekend, you know the ladies celebrated thanksgiving with us, just as the pilgrims did, by hiring a male stripper. [ laughter ] it was for a housewife named candy's 35th birthday. they hired a stripper named r ridiculous. [ laughter ] guillermo, i think, is thinking
about that as the name for his baby. ridiculous got the job because he has a very unusual talent. >> oh, my goodness. oh. >> ridiculous has the amazing ability to pleasure himself on demand. >> really didn't expect a stripper that was going to suck his own [ bleep ]. it was nasty. i mean, that's -- that's -- that's [ bleep ] up. >> jimmy: and again, this was the thanksgiving episode. [ laughter ] you know, that's a great clip, i couldn't help but think we could make it better. we took the audio from that clip and combined it with video from "the flintstones" and now i think it's something the whole family can enjoy. >> okay, everyone, it's time for a big surprise. >> oh, my goodness. >> ridiculous has the amazing ability to pleasure himself on demand.
>> really didn't expect a stripper that was going to -- >> suck his own [ bleep ]. it was nasty. i mean, that's just -- that's [ bleep ] up. [ applause ] >> jimmy: we have may added a part to fred, but -- stripping was a one-step process back then. just remove the pelt and that was it. and one more thing. a few months ago, after an exhaustive search of the halls, we found a new correspondent for the show. a gentleman named kyle mooney. and kyle is here. hi, kyle. i saw kyle online and i liked his style. i like your style, kyle. >> i -- just trying to do what i do, mr. kimmel. >> jimmy: well, it's great to have you. kyle did so well in his last assignment -- have you met chewbacca? >> say what's up to the big hairy -- >> jimmy: yeah, right. and we asked him to visit the
north american reptile breeder conference. they have a big conference here in los angeles and you and your friend dave made this tape by yourselves? >> went out, shot that bad boy for all the big town hollywoods. >> jimmy: all right. here he is, kyle moony at the reptile show. >> welcome to the reptile convention. you know what i'm talking about. fierce, slimy. these creatures are both good at night and at day. let's talk to the people to see if they are really the best creatures for reptiles in this year. like reptiles? >> oh, of course. >> 1 month old and already two reptile shows. >> wow. and how is that by you? pretty soon you might want to see him with the tail and scales. >> hopefully not.
>> what did you pick up? >> a frog. >> oh. that's -- that's -- that looks just like the real thing. could hop out of here. >> it does indeed. >> when was the first time for some of these guys? >> i'm sorry? >> when was the first time for some of these guys? >> the first time? >> i'm sorry, i can't hear you. >> when was the first slime for one of these guys. >> the first time? um? >> wow. look at this. ain't chent wooden reptile. you can see these were the first that came to the earth and have still survived to this day. very unique breed and very unique bride and pride. >> it's still hard to imagine in this day and age that people are afraid to touch snakes because they think they're slimy. >> they're not slimy because of
the scales. >> yeah, exactly. >> it's not that slimy. >> right. they're covered with scales. >> used to be covered with smile. >> they were never covered with slime. >> one of the biggest reptiles they have here, right? ride that out into the sun. >> that would be awesome. >> how did you get into the slime fellows? >> ah, global, just working with mitch beam. >> global on, yeah, yeah. i know -- i know those dudes. it's a nice day out here with these green slimers. >> it's what? >> nice day out here with these green slimers. >> i don't -- what? >> nice day out here with these
green slimers. >> green timers? >> nice day out here with these green slimers. >> nice out here with these green slimers? >> it's a reptile show. >> yes, it's awesome. >> all right, okay. >> yeah, i don't know what you're asking about. >> you have to be careful. you have to start very slowly. just, you know, stroking them and i advise wearing a -- and after awhile, they're fine. >> you saw it here. reptiles, all those little creatures and their funny human friend counterparts. hopefully we get to have another good time like that once again. [ applause ] >> jimmy: well, thank you. excellent work, kyle. kyle, everybody.

>> you have a very enthusiastic crowd. >> jimmy: they are. well, some of them are wearing shirts with your face on it. >> oh, my god. thank you. um -- it's nice to meet you. >> jimmy: nice to meet you, too. we have not met before. >> we have not met before. in preparation, i was thinking, i've known who you were for years now. i watched "ben stein's money." "win ben stein's money." >> jimmy: my first show. >> of course i saw you. and the one thing that occurred to me was, were you frequently in your underwear on that show? [ laughter ] >> jimmy: probably. >> okay, because i was afraid it was like a one-time thing and it made such an impression on me that i assumed that you were always in it, which still may be true and it says so many bad things about me. >> jimmy: when you have a body like mine, you share it with others. >> and people remember it. >> jimmy: you know, hon eesthon know i was in my underwear a few times. when ben would get in a bad mood, he was losing or
something, i would take my clothes off and he would again be delighted. >> oh, of course. of course. do you still speak to ben? >> jimmy: yes, i do. >> really? how did you meet him to get on that? >> jimmy: well, i just auditioned for it. >> oh, you did? >> jimmy: i had to audition in my underwear, too. >> hired. >> jimmy: he's very hands on. [ laughter ] >> you know, you don't think of ben stein like that. >> jimmy: no. >> i like -- >> jimmy: i do. i think of him like that. >> well, of course you do. >> jimmy: how old you were when you were watching that show? >> in high school, probably. >> jimmy: how old you are now? >> i'm 38 now. >> jimmy: really? wow, because i would have guessed you are -- you look very young. >> i do. i do. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah. that's not good, though, when you're younger, you don't want to look very young. >> no, it sucks when you're you younger. i'm telling you -- i don't do anything that i get i.d.'d for -- i don't drink anymore -- the worst was -- >> jimmy: when was the last time you got carded? >> probably -- four -- when i stopped smoking, which was three or four years ago. and that's the one that cracked me up. you not only have to be 18 to
smoke and i was literally 34 years old. i'm not kidding. being carded in a 7-eleven. and then -- the double whammy was -- it frustrated me so, but i understood to a debris, but i thought, 18? i'm 34. i put it down and they always look at it like, oh, whoa. and then they -- i think they think it's fake again. because it's like -- why would you overshoot that far, you know? i'm nearing 40. >> jimmy: like "16 candles." >> a weird situation. >> jimmy: i had a -- i thought very clever thing. when i was 16, i got a fake i.d. that said i was 19 and the drinking age was 21 and my fake i.d. grew into 21. it's a great tip for kids out there. >> really. talk about patience being a virtue. that really pays off if you're willing to put in the time. >> jimmy: you have to put in the time. you just have to. >> it's worth it, you know? that's the kind of thing you want to wait for. >> jimmy: wind up on television in your underpants all the time.
looking that young, was it hard to get jobs and stuff as a younger person? >> you know -- i don't think so, but looking back, i was a bank teller, was really my first major job i had. >> jimmy: how old were you? >> 19 to 20. >> jimmy: oh, wow, okay. >> i didn't look just young and dumb, i looked young and honest, you know? i still look pretty honest. >> jimmy: yeah, you do. >> so, they would, i think that was -- people were comfortable letting me handle money or whatever. somewhat foolishly. i was honest but i was a bad bank teller. only that i would never -- my drawer was never balanced because i was bad at putting in the figures. i was very good at customer service and i was very honest with the money and i could count. so, i didn't actually mess up with the bills but my totals, i would be $10,000 one way or the other. extra zeros. >> jimmy: what kind of a bank did you work in? >> i think it was called first interstate, but it was in a grocery store. >> jimmy: oh, it was?
so, you're next to, like, the dog food and the -- >> in the middle of all. >> jimmy: okay. in the front area -- >> it was very weird. >> jimmy: with the dura flame logs? >> i see everyone. and i was close to my neighborhood where i grew up. i've grown less friendlier the older i've gotten, because i wouldn't want to see those people. oh, i know you're mom. i don't care. they all talk to you. >> jimmy: you feel like you have grown less friendly? do you think that's a result of being on television, or do you think that's just general aging? >> i think i'm just getting cantankerous. >> jimmy: your fans, they seem a little bit extra, like, excited. >> yes, they are. and most -- 99.9% of the time it is heaven. but -- i was in new york over the past summer and i was in a restaurant with three of my friends and there was this woman who -- ending is kind of spoiled because we know we're talking about fans. i didn't know. suddenly i heard "jim!" and this woman is rushing towards me and she seems so -- i'm like, oh, my god, i know --
i'm like, hi! and my friends are going, who is this? an old teacher? i'm like, did we work together, did we date? what the hell happened? no. anyway, so, she -- she's hugging me and kisses me on the face and all of a sudden she starts talking and i realize, i don't know her at all. i got so -- i was like, i've been so duped. this is like this woman's thing, you know? she comes up and pretends that she knows you and you're too nice to be rude and go, who the hell are you? before you get any wits about you, she's embraced you and kissed you and you have the flu or whatever she's carrying. so, that's not good. i'm glad she likes the show. this is a wonderful distance we're keeping from me and the shirts, you know? >> jimmy: we're going to take a break. we'll be right back. jim is in "the muppets," it's in theaters now. we'll be right back.

time ♪ ♪ i think i made up my mind ♪ now i understand who i am >> jimmy: that's jim parsons with jason segel in "the muppets," in theaters now. you said when -- [ applause ] i think i heard you say when we started the clip that you haven't seen that. >> that's my very first time seeing that. >> jimmy: you haven't seen the movie? >> no. >> jimmy: why? >> they of course were kind enough to invite me to screenings, all of which i had a conflict and i couldn't go to the premiere. i have never seen any of that and i wasn't allowed to talk about it for the longest time. i would do interviews, and they go, you cannot mention the muppet movie. because i'm the human version of that puppet. >> jimmy: even that you're in it. >> don't talk about it. it was like a state secret. and finally, i was like, okay, this is making me crazy. i respect the decision but it's on imdb. the internet can talk about it and i can't talk about it. this is a really nice moment to get to see it. >> jimmy: yeah. >> with the crowd.
[ applause ] it's nice. >> jimmy: surprises me that you haven't seen it and you sing very nicely in that, too. >> yeah. [ laughter ] lip synching. >> jimmy: really? >> i didn't know we were going to be singing. i'm like, this is the role of my lifetime. and they delivered the script, all in red paper, top secret, my name all over it. again, nothing could get out. and i looked in, i had no lines. i thought, this is getting better by the second. and it did say i was part of a musical number, but i thought jason segel and walter, the main puppet, would be doing things and me and the other muppet would just dance. i'm like, that's great. i get there, i go to the dressing room and the, trailer, and there's a knock and the director with a boom box goes, okay, there's the song, you need to learn the words to that. i'm like, we're 30 minutes from shooting. he's like, uh-huh. so, i -- i learned -- it's not that complicated.
am i a man or am i a muppet. >> jimmy: you would think you'd get more than a half an hour. >> you would think you would. hollywood wants spontaneity. >> jimmy: that's the muppets. they are so craze li disorganized but it all comes together in the end. >> it really, really does. >> jimmy: and walter -- you are the -- we can say it now, you're the walter ego is what you are. >> jason and this puppet are really close friends and this is kind of a -- i guess it's kind of a realization part for each of them. in the way, why do they connect so well? because on the inside, jason is a bit of a muppet and on the inside, walter is a bit of a man. and i was that man. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: congratulations. you are kind of -- you are a man and a muppet. you're like a human -- you're a humpet. [ applause ] huppet. yeah.

vancouver called colona. there you go. yes. >> jimmy: does it smell like cologne there? >> one person. >> jimmy: well, maybe that. how many people live there? >> when i was growing up -- it's huge now. it's pretty big now but it was more or less like a small town inside colona called rutland, really right in there. and it's like a one-light town, really. >> jimmy: what do you do there for fun? >> what did i do for fun? we could steal golf balls. literally steal golf balls, jump over into the golf course and sell them in egg cartons. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: to the people that you stole them from? >> yeah, absolutely. but i was like 7, so, you -- >> jimmy: right. you got to learn to steal sometime. [ laughter ] >> right. >> jimmy: did you play hockey? >> i did. >> jimmy: you did? you have to, right? >> yeah, right. 20 years. >> jimmy: wow, 20 years. so you really played hockey. >> yeah, i did. >> jimmy: you were not kidding around. 20 years? >> not kidding around.
>> i had the whole typical canadian, frozen pond in the backyard, apple orchard on the other side. two older brothers, regardless, i was goalie. no matter what. >> jimmy: oh, yeah. >> made my own pads. head shots only, apparently. >> jimmy: nice. older brothers are bad. and you played -- what level did you get to? >> i played junior and a bit at canadian university. pretty good level. but there was -- >> jimmy: you have all you've original teeth? >> that's a negative. >> jimmy: is that right? how many of those are fake that i'm looking at? >> all. every single one. >> jimmy: no way. they look pretty real. >> that's good. that's the point. >> jimmy: okay, all right. [ laughter ] >> no, i remember playing in this -- we would play in these small, small arenas and, you know, 2,500 people, which is a lot, even when you're 18, 19. >> jimmy: sure. >> but we would come out of the tunnel, warm up, you would get candy, bananas, chocolate bars thrown at you --
>> jimmy: delicious. like halloween. >> pretty -- yeah. we didn't look at it that way. >> jimmy: you didn't? >> not a fun building to play in. >> jimmy: really? >> yeah, because there's so much tension and they just -- >> jimmy: how much tension could it be when they are throwing candy? it's like a pinata has exploded on your head. >> yeah, right. but there was something this one night, too, and it was our rivals and basically what happened, long story short, we were in this intense game, we were up, in their building so you can't win big in their building, first of all. they will make sure, they will intimidate you for the next game, right? >> jimmy: right. >> this line brawl breaks out. five-on-five. three forwards, two defensemen, two goalies, goalies didn't fight. i'm one of the forwards. i look over and there's my two forwards, my brothers, really, i look over, they jump the boards sol they don't have to fight. so it's five-on-three. everyone has their gloves off, helmets off.
we played with these half visors. and so -- i was like a midd middleweight guy. didn't fight a lot but once in awhile. and five-on-three, i look across the ice, their heavyweight is looking at me. >> jimmy: great. >> literally calling me over. i'm doing a double take over to my guys -- >> jimmy: who are at the hot dog stand. >> exactly. eating the candy. so, i had to go fight this guy right in front of our bench. so, there's three refs, right, and four, five fights going on. so you got to fight way long herb -- >> jimmy: they're fighting. >> no kidding. you have to fight way longer before they get to you. >> jimmy: i see. >> soim so, i'm in the middle of this, i broke my nose, he broke his nose, we're both drenched in blood. so, basically, we're so tired punching each other that he's -- he goes, you good? you good? [ laughter ] and i'm like -- i'm good, man. just hold on.
we're both leaking terribly. >> jimmy: basically just dancing at this point. >> basically. waiting for the refs to come. it's like -- this intense fight broke out, it's silent now. >> jimmy: what happened to the two guys -- >> it gets good. >> jimmy: all right. >> so i'm down in the tunnel and it's intermission, getting my nose reset. these guys come down by me and i literally snapped because, you know, five-on-three, not what you want, really, from your teammates. so, the coach lost it on those guys. one guy got traded the next day and then another guy, i think he got cut and, yeah, it was -- >> jimmy: good. you have to fight along with your guys, right? >> absolutely. >> jimmy: that's that. and this is good training for this movie because this is a big deal, this movie. >> we think so. >> jimmy: yeah, i mean -- it looks like it's really good. it's like -- you go to mars -- >> i do. >> jimmy: you didn't shoot on the actual mars. >> no, we went to mars. >> jimmy: what was mars like?
>> well this movie will show you. >> jimmy: did you get to travel around or did you just stay in the hotel? >> the hotel. just the hotel. i wouldn't believe -- leave. >> jimmy: who is john carter? >> john carter is a guy that -- when you meet him, his purpose, his cause, is gone. he goes to civil war to protect his family, which is, of course, back then, the only thing you had. and they're taken from him. and he gets through these events, gets transported to mars and this incredible journey that is more than character-driven happens within itself and these people that he meets, which is like a nomadic tribe, played by willem dafoe. >> jimmy: he plays the whole tribe? >> he's the whole tribe. like thousands of characters. he's really good. >> jimmy: he's fantastic. congratulations on it. look forward to seeing it. it's called "john carter." it opens march 9th. it's a long way off from now. almost as long as that fight. taylor kitsch, everybody. we'll be right back with music from my morning jacket. xoxwxwxww
